Pretty hot week. I was trying to get over 40 miles this week but it didn't quite happen. Finally made it to the track for my first track workout of the summer. I did 12 x 400 at 8 min pace (2:00) with 200m recovery and then did 4 x 200 at 46s also with 200 recovery. Nothing like a track workout to really make you see how slow you are. I'm not sure how I ever run under 8 min pace when I can barely do a quarter at that pace. I was having a tough day but I got through it.
On Saturday we did the Run for hte Beavers Trail Race in Rhode Island. Really cool course- a five mile loop. I registered for the 10 miler but just couldn't talk myself into the second loop- or rather talked myself out of the second loop before the halfway. I was jsut not feeling it and was afraid I'd turn my ankle or something if I pushed it. My foot was pretty sore too. Besides when I came around in 51 minutes I figured Greggie would be coming around from his second loop in about 10 minutes. I decided to stay and watch him win it. And he did. Sunday I still wasn't feeling great and could only eek out 5 miles in Freidsam with Griffin fo 38 miles for the week. Almost at 1000 miles for the year. Next week for sure. It's a process and I love it!
